BlackBerry OS autoloaders now available for download

By Bla1ze on 13 Mar 2014 07:24 pm EDT

As you may or may not know by now, T-Mobile has gone ahead and released BlackBerry 10.2.1 today. But to be more specific, it's actually OS That's a higher OS release than some of the other carriers that have already released 10.2.1 and while that might not be a big deal for most folks, if you're fully into running the latest and greatest OS on your device you can now download the autoloaders to facilitate in getting your device updated to OS

Aside from a few updated system files, it's hard to say what improvements this OS may have over other releases at this point but as people load it up and use it, we'll certainly end up knowing more. You can head on into the CrackBerry Forums to find the autoloader download links, as well discuss what changes you might be seeing after you have it loaded.

Keep in mind, autoloaders wipe your device clean so if you're not wanting to do that then you'll have to look at updating through Sachesi. Finally, if NONE of this makes any sense to you, then it may be best to just stick with the OS you have or ask in the forums for further help on getting it all loaded up. Shout out to Thurask and theonecid for posting them up.

BlackBerry OS autoloaders now available for download


For TM users, there is functional WiFi calling.

For those who had a problem with BBM not working correctly on some Beta OS, this OS has a fully functional BBM.
The BB Beta's for BBM are fully functional.

Other than that, this OS release works well.

I don't think that Sachesi is going to help with Z30s....can't find a single 10.2.1 upgrade....

Has anyone in the USA updated "successfully" to 10.2.1 with Sachesi or auto load????

If so, how?


They also added IMS Services. voice, video calling ,and RCS using LTE enhance services

I don't think those were actual leaks. As it is with the one mentioned here it was officially released somewhere in the world and then made into an autoloader for us. The last actual leak was 1925 I think. As in it came off the servers before it was an OTA update for anyone anywhere in the world.


Not sure whether it's worth the trouble. Let's wait for the news from those who got it.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Exciting, I hope some of the stability issues I ran into with are resolved.

Posted via CB10

I had those instabilities. It's mental instability caused by awesomeness overload.

I'm Zeeing a bright future for Blackberry

I had a lot of stability issues with apps like snapchat, instagram and sometimes games would all force close that never did before

Random reboots, occasional lockups, especially when multitasking with 6+ apps. HUB lockups, Android app launch delays when launching an app from a notification, loss of signal and slow network detection, etc. I'm an extremely heavy user, draining my Z30 typically within 10-12 hours. I ran into all of those with SW release.

Posted via CB10

Like terrible battery and issues with Android apps that I didn't have before (app not responding etc).

Come on 10.3!

I agree they were S L O W on all of the updates, except 10.2.1. They did get it out unusually soon after it was announced.
So I'll give them a star for that.
I'm hoping they will go for a 2nd star with this update. Have to wait and see.

Got my Z30 from Verizon on Feb 6th with OS version10.2.0.1233 and software release
No 10.2.1 upgrade of any kind :(

My bitchin' Z30 BlackBerry on mine via autoloader....the official OS released for the Z10 on Verizon. I've had no issues with it on my Z30..

Posted via CB10

Not really, it's an official OS from a carrier that released a higher version then most others. If it eases your mind in some way, shape or form though -- you have to 'install it like a leak'

Lmao... I'm actually please with Z30STA100-5/ on Rogers. but I do wonder when Telus will release it on the Z10.

Rogers Deals and Discounts C0022C8F2

I received update from Bell on Z10 a number of days ago, still waiting for Telus update for Z10 and Z30. My guess is the Telus update delay isnt specific to the Z10 but across the board.

I installed mine via BlackBerry Link. No need to use autoloader.

Posted via CB10 on my Q10 running showed up when I checked for an update on my Z30 on T-Mobile... I assume the new would have the wifi calling for those on T-Mobile?

Posted via CB10

I'm using an unlocked Z10 on T-MO that already received the Blackberry 10.2.1 update awhile back. Is there even a point to downloading this OTA?

That's what I was thinking. It's got their iteration of wifi calling.

This post Powered by BlackBerry showed up on three in the UK two days ago, no idea what changes were made!

Posted via CB10

Good battery performance for me, been working on my Z10 one hour of youtube,and it only drop 15% wich wasn't possible with the last version I had.

Posted via CB10

What's the last version you had? I'm on Z10STL100-3/ and it's pretty good battery life.

Posted via CB10

Do you have wifi calling working on a z30 on T-Mobile after the update? If so, that is good news indeed...kindly clarify if you see this message.

BTW, as a reminder, if you use the sachesi procedure, don't forget to swith back airplane mode off after the first reboot ;)

Congratulation to Tmobile.
Unfortunately AT&T USA is still with the B#*!T excuses that they are still doing testing.

I just updated my OS today. My version is Q10SQN100-5/ if you type "myver" but 2156 if you check under software update.

Posted with my BlackBerry Q10 to CB10

That's telling you your *software version*, (the OS number proper) and your *software release* (the entire package of updates, including radio version etc.) There is no contradiction.

Posted by the inimitable Z10 handheld system

You just loaded it. How would you know? 10.2.1 is an amazing OS for the Z10. From what it was before the last T-MOBILE update, night and day. So much packed in here. I updated mine months ago. It's like owning a brand new phone. Wifi calling is here folks for those who care. Lol!

Posted via CB10

WI fi calling is working on this version. Just downloaded OTA from TMO a few hours ago.

Mine updated to last week. I didn't notice any difference but I was hoping someone would and put it on here

Posted via CB10

For me. 2102 battery is terrible and started having issues with Android apps that I didn't have before. If batter better in. 2228 I will go for it.

Come on 10.3!

I'm thinking I'm going to grab this ND put it on my wife's phone (Q10 stock) and put it on mine (Z10

Posted via CB10

So what is this update I just installed last week?

Posted from a Blackberry touch phone thingy. Yes it has a Z on it's name and no it's not the Z30 :P

Can anyone confirm if wifi calling would work with a Z30. I have a Z30 with tmobile.

Brought to you by...My sweet Z30

Don't know if any Canadian carriers support it (I've heard only one carrier per country can do it, for some reason or another, and T-Mobile is the one in the USA), but for people like me it's a critical feature.

It detects WiFi access to the phone and routes all incoming/outgoing phone calls through WiFi instead of over the air with the cellular network. My home in the woods on the best day gets 2-bar service, usually 1 bar and often none - it's really poor. Without WiFi Calling, my Z10 is grossly unreliable for phone calls at home, so I had to wait for today's leak to get 10.2.1 at long last, because the leaks don't support WiFi Calling.

If you leave the range of WiFi during a call, the call is dropped, but if you are on a cell call and get in range of WiFi, it transfers over pretty smoothly. If your plan has a limited number of calling minutes, the limits still apply even when using WiFi; I don't have that issue.

Rogers in Canada has wifi calling BUT you have to sign up for Rogers OneNumber (it's free) and you have to load up the Android version of the OneNumber app.

What's neat (though I haven't actually tried it) is you can switch an ongoing call between wifi and cell.

Don't have much call (no pun intended) for it because of my plan (pretty much unlimited everything, even LD), but would be useful if I was travelling.

Posted via CB10

I had wifi calling with Rogers last year but cancel it a few months ago. The option costed 5$ a month, and you loose your calls when you loose your wifi, which is a major inconvenience.

Z30 on

Posted via CB10

Why can't it update as usual why must be the hard way... I don't understand the instruction at all to update it...

Posted via CB10

Rogers used to have wifi calling, but replaced it with its One Number program. Not sure about the others.

Posted via CB10

Maybe this will fix the 4g (small "g") problem. Mine did this today and I wasn't getting data until I rebooted only then it connected to 4G again.

Posted via CB10 on my Z10

I'm going to wait until I know more. If there aren't any significant changes, I'll stick to what I have and love! :)

These words are brought to you by my elegant and classy Z10 or Q10.

to get the blackberry movement going again i think all blackberry users need to band together and refuse to answer messages from anyone if its not on BBM . thats a start. then we need to educate everyone we know thru messages, emails and word of mouth about the benefits of the new OS ... android...

I'm happy for the people that get this update. Too bad AT&T still has their thumbs firmly planted up their arse.

I actually now got a notice to download the OS update at 30MB on my carrier.

Kind of scared to download it as I just got a weird unsolicited "call me" text from an international number before the update showed.

Also scared because the last update my carrier did was quickly taken down because it was buggy lol....

Posted via CB10

Wifi calling app is now active with this OS. This is a huge deal for some of us. I was almost switching my carrier. I am happy I stayed. Best pricing with wifi calling. Can't beat that!!!!!!

Still Running the Leak on T-Mobile.

And mine (from T-MO) comes in as

It seems I get my own private update number. Makes ya kinda humble and kinda proud.

Yes, you can down load the leak, just before downloading make sure you are downloading the correct file..

I mean In india Z 10 has STL 100 1, so check this...

Sooo now I can't text...any one else having this problem...also the predictive text noise is quite annoying now...

Posted via CB10

I had that problem for about an hour, then all was better.
Z10STL100-3/ on T-Mobile.

Posted via CB10

Ppl out there....sorry to ask...can you please tell me what's wifi calling and how does it work??
Am from wifi calling anyway working here??

Posted via CB10

Hey, Monday I woke up and during the night my phone updated to 10.2.2102 . I have no idea what the changes were.
Anyone know.

Posted via CB10

FireUp T-Mobile USA BLACKBERRY users. "Ask and you shall receive" You did and you got it, enjoy!!!!!!

I'm in Los Angeles and T-Mobile updated to 10.2.12228 and it's smooth as butter so far. Wifi is working well and no problems to report. I want to see how my battery life will respond with this update. The file was about 447 megs. I will report back in a couple of days with battery results. This a great way to start the weekend. What's funny is that I was in the T-Mobile store today and the reps knew nothing about the update. I guess that's typical in what I have been hearing and reading about. I wish I had a change log to know what is different than the last version. If anyone has any info please post.
Have a Great weekend everybody and enjoy each and every day above ground.

My Z10 has a Flow

Does over the air update wipe your device clean as well? I've always updated through auto loader, the T-mobile update is my first update via the phone. So I want to check before I do so. Thanks!

To answer your question. No, it's does not wipe the device. I did the update myself and all is good.

My Z10 has a Flow

Nice.. I didn't use the Wifi calling but it'll be worth having it available for any weak / dead spots.. : )

Posted from my Q10 (TMobile) Running OS as of 2.14.2014!

My Phone just got an Update.

Few minutes ago my phone got an update for its OS. The update version is, it is a 30mb update and cant tell any changelog.

My phone is a BlackBerry Z10 STL100-1
My network is Digicel Panama

Posted via CB10

The update this article is about is a higher version and, so far, seems better on battery.

Come on 10.3!

So is the only thing notable in this update that wifi calling is supported, i'm still running the official

The only thing imma complain about this update is the battery drain.

So is it worth updating?

Posted by Phobe's Owner on the BlackBerry Q10

Battery was worth the price of admission for me. Double power already on unsettled .2888 vs settled .2102 or.1925.

Come on 10.3!

Since BlackBerry aficionados mostly self-install their updates nowadays (or at least that's how it seems on Crackberry!) there's no harm in grabbing this one via Sachesi, I guess.

Though if it really only has minimal differences to, well, I might have something more interesting to do...

T-Mobile is making big claims for 2015, as it’s promising all of its EDGE/2G markets will be converted to LTE by midyear

Posted via CB10

so when are blackberry gunna push this out because my carrier (THREE) dont seem to be budgeing and its peeing me off :/

Why don't you release a higher version as 10.3 or 10.2.2 atleast. Bored of downloading and installing. No such changes seen. Instead of building BlackBerry 10 os why don't you put an os name in respect to their model. Like BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 etc.

Posted via CB10

Why is BB releasing leaks? Who are they trying to be? Google? or APPLE? Maybe Microsoft? LMAO

Anyway I'm on TMO and my update is up to 2156 and not 2228 as this article states. I have the Z10

Curious! How do you run apps after downloading it using apktrain website? I downloaded Tango app but it didn't work. I have the OS version but it reads software release TMO am I running on or


Posted via CB10

What's different in this autoloader update ? And when it will be able to update from my device?

Posted via CB10 - Q5

Can you do an OTA update for a Z30 with Sachesi? Or is that not possible since only Verizon has it so T-Mobile won't have the file for that model?

I'm on TMO USA & I got, but I did get the 10.2.1 update the same day it was released a few months back.

Posted via CB10

Using, for me the most stable OS yet! Since this one doesn't have major changes gonna stick to 537 for now.Anyway thanks CB :)

Posted via CB10

I can't seem to find this release in Sachesi. Has anyone else managed to get it? It is an official release so I would expect to find it. I tried country 310 and carrier 026.

I'm on T-Mo and got my update yesterday afternoon, which shows up as, yet you indicate that it should be *.2228. Some of the posters say they got *.2156, and some say they got *.2228. Why the different versions? What's the difference between them? is the software release while is the OS version with the radio version.

Posted via CB10

Got my update late night, what a nice surprise after a long day at the slave pit....spent the early morning checking it out! any must have apps recommended? My first was amazon app store then mp3 downloader......blackberry lives to see another day
Sent from my new and improved z10

Posted via CB10

Oh yeah, the real reason I do I get snap? I can't find it in blackberry world?!?
Thanks guys

Posted via CB10

How do these updates work seriously? I have .2102 and my Q10 is factory unlocked, yet there are no updates available. Do I still have to wait for the carrier I use to update the OS yet they have nothing to do with the phone in the first place...? My carrier is T-mobile Hungary..

2102 has been working fine for me on both my Z10s. Going to load one with 2228 and see if there's anything noticeable...

We few, we happy few, we band of Crackberry brothers

Can someone please help me to put this on to my phone I've never uploaded an auto loader onto a blackberry before can someone please help thanx

Any suggestions for Sachesi input to

From Indonesia XL Network:

BlackBerry 10 OS update
Version - Size 38MB
A software update is available for your device and is being downloaded.


CB10 on  Z10STL100-2/

I want BlackBerry to lean on the big red to release 10.2.1. If you are reading this, high chance you are comfortable downloading official version from a quality source. In the long term, BlackBerry doesn't survive on just the CrackBerry users. The non-CB reader has to have faith that a new release will be easy to load (indeed, I loaded 10.2.1 from Saschi). That isn't the point, tho. The everyday business enterprise manager doesn't want employees replacing on version with a non-official version on company issued phone s. So if the only way to keep current is updating thru leaks, etc, growth in the business market will be stymied, that is the core group that I understand BlackBerry is trying to keep! Rock on, Z30!

Posted via CB10

I got it, download & now I regret it it had the multiple alarm which I really want but I can't use some of my apps grr so frustrating. Why wasn't this issue taken care of I see complaints back in January about the same issue. When I open Kobo it just goes to a black screen this happens with android apps only.

Posted via CB10

I just upgraded to the official update from Tmo. It's actually I upgraded from the leaked One thing that works that I'm happy for is the Wi-Fi calling because I get poor reception in my house.

No issues so far.

Posted via CB10 on my Q10 running

OK I just updated to this new os seems to be working fine. The only thing that does not work is the wifi calling. I'm on the Verizon network running current OS software release Please can anyone help me resolve this issue


i noticed a few things. The number keys are at the top on sign in. Thats good you dont have to go back and forth between numbers and letters. Its seems to be okay for battery life as well. I know the z10 has suffered on some of the new OS offerings but this seems to be okay no read difference one way or the other. i did the full destructive install not sachesi. This time i just put snap on and didnt load up much for Apk. I find i dont really need android apps at all. The made for blackberry apps work better anyway. Maybe this was the trick that blackberry discovered let people use the apk files and after they find out the functionality isnt really there they wont want to use them . I think im giving them more credit then they are due but i definitely think thats the case in reality. I think leaks might be few and far between. It is intellectual property they are giving away and im sure there is something employees sign that says they are not allowed to do that. So firing people when they do is fully within there jurisdiction. we still have the early OS releases though so all is not lost.
